Hannamari Ruohonen: No, Gary, No!

Gary is a happy and inventive gorilla child. A bit too inventive, perhaps. Gary thinks that food can be used for other things than just eating. He must be told many times during the meal: Gary, no! When reading the book, the child can take the parent’s role and feel much more skillful than playful Gary. You mustn’t dip the sausage in the milk! Nor paint your hair with mashed potatoes! No, Gary!
